Best of the Woodworking Web - Wintergatan's Marble Machine

When we first saw this video a few weeks ago, we just knew it was perfect for our next 'Best of the Woodworking Web' post. The Wintergatan Marble Machine was built by Martin Molin, a Swedish musician, and is powered by 2,000 marbles. The end result is really impressive.

You can see a whole series of videos showing how the machine was made on Wintergatan's YouTube channel.

Product Review for the Triton TWX7 Workcentre

Here on the Triton blog we usually concentrate our efforts on telling the stories of other woodworkers around the world and giving you an insight into their craft. Those of you who have followed the blog for a while might remember an interview by Chris Marshall at the IWF show in Atlanta in 2014, where we first previewed the Triton TWX7 Workcentre for the US audience. As a departure from the usual fair, this week we are really blowing our own trumpet. We sent the TWX7 to Woodworker's Journal Magazine in the United States for them to review and this is their short film.

Come and see us in action

For those of you in Europe, you can see this product with live demonstrations at the International Hardware Fair in Cologne, Germany, from the 6th 'til the 8th of March. We will also be joined by some of our #MastersofWood contributors to the blog who will be on the Triton booth taking part in live demos and answering your questions. So come along for a chance to meet April Wilkerson, our favourite YouTuber from Texas, Patrick Burnett, maker of amazing wooden surfboards from Cape Town, South Africa, and Jamie Smith, a cabinet maker from the UK. If you are at the show, stop by for a coffee and a chat.
